todays designer is the wonderfully talented Schatzi Brown (otherwise known as Tanya Brown). based in New York she has a background in Surface and Textile Design.
she has a beautiful blog where you can follow her work. i love her pattern story feature, it's like a growing look-book, full of so much inspiration! ...the same with her pinterest collections...gorgeous mini-moodboards of all varieties...i could stare at them all day!
Tanya incorporates so many elements into her designs - hand drawn motifs, painting and digital elements - it gives her a totally unique style. i absolutely love her palettes - just so rich and yummy!
if you want to own some of Tanyas work she has a number of her designs available as iPhone cases, laptop skins, and canvases on society6, and she has prints for sale on etsy:
